CAT Exam Centers 2021: Check State Wise Test Centers List

 

CAT 2021 will be held in 158 test cities at more than 400 exam centres across the country. All the 10 test cities of Delhi NCR have been split into separate test cities. Earlier IIMs clubbed all these Delhi NCR cities into one exam city as NCR. All the applicants can choose any 6 preferred test cities out of 158 test cities. Those planning to choose Delhi, New Delhi, Noida, Gurugram. Ghaziabad, Faridabad, Panipat, Greater Noida and others.

 

Besides, the candidates would be allotted the nearest test city to their address. CAT 2021 test cities have been increased to accommodate higher number of test takers. The important details about the CAT test venues in these CAT test cities 2021 are available on the CAT 2021 website. The name of the CAT test centre within the test city will also be indicated in the CAT Admit Card.

 CAT 2021 Test City Preference & Allotment Process

  • Candidates will be given the option to select six test cities in order of preference
  • Cities and centres will be assigned to the candidates only after the last date for CAT 2021 registration is over
  • Candidates need not rush to block slots and cities in the initial days of registration
  • Although IIMs try their best to assign candidates to their first preferred city, in case this is not possible, they will be assigned a city following their given order of preference.
  • Candidates will not be able to select the exam session because it will be assigned randomly.  

All Delhi NCR Cities Separated 
All the 8 important cities in Delhi NCR, which were clubbed into one city earlier have been separated again. Now the CAT applicants from Delhi NCR can choose any four preferred test cities out of them. The cities avaibale for Delhi NCR candidates are:

Delhi
New Delhi
Faridabad
Gurugram
Panipat
Noida
Ghaziabad
Greater Noida
Rohtak
Meerut

Facility to Save Travel Time
Now a resident of Noida or Ghaziabad may choose these test cities separately. This will help in reducing the travel time and inconvenience that was caused few years ago. 

 

The wastage of time due to running and travelling to a CAT test centre in Delhi NCR stands reduced for CAT 2021. Finding that CAT test takers will be at loss, IIM Ahmedabad has taken the matter a bit seriously and has cleared the confusion. Now there are sufficient and clearly marked test city choices without creating any confusion.
